It looks like Nuna Mixx, Stokke Scoot V2 and 2015 UPPAbaby Cruz are the most popular reversible seat strollers right now. I’ve been getting tons of emails about them asking how do they compare to each other.
Before getting into it, I want to say that all three of them are great quality strollers that can be used for everyday life like going to the grocery store, running errands or going to the park. So no matter which one you choose, I am sure you will enjoy it.

As you can see a lot of them have the same features like reversible seat, large basket, large canopy, 5-point harness, deep recline, and all-wheel suspension. Which stroller is better? I think that you have to decide for yourself. They all have their own pluses and minuses.
I am a little surprised that there so little accessories for Nuna Mixx and it works only with Nuna Pipa infant car seat. It looks like Nuna was in the hurry to release the stroller because I can see a cup holder and child’s tray as an accessory on their site, but it says ‘coming soon’.
The fact that Nuna Mixx comes with an infant car seat adapter for Nuna Pipa and doesn’t have any adapters for any other car seats, makes me think that they want you to buy Nuna Pipa. Don’t get me wrong, Nuna Pipa is a great car seat, but is a little on the expensive side. Not everybody wants to pay $300 for a car seat.
Also, it would be nice to have a bassinet option like Nuna IVVI has. Why not?
The Scoot V2 has improved wheels that can handle a lot more terrain and they’ve added one more recline position, but recline itself is the same pain-in-the-behind strap system. I would like to see one-hand lever recline instead.
More importantly, where is the bumper bar? It’s not even available as one of the accessories. This is very surprising because its sister model Stokke Crusi comes with a bumper bar. The Crusi also has a bassinet as an optional accessory. I am wondering why Scoot V2 only has a SoftBag.
The 2015 Uppababy Cruz got bigger wheels and includes a bumper bar. Yay! The only thing I can complain about is the bulky fold.
